The cartoon styled land of the game is Halloween themed but in a child friendly way with cute characters. Even the fighting involves you punching characters until they feel happy and start dancing. There is a lot of exploration to do to complete all your quests which will involve navigating obstacle courses, and enemies to defeat by punching or firing a catapult.
A great game for spooky season, but can be enjoyed all year round.
